DIGITAL METHODS FOR UNDERSTANDING FAKE NEWS (HANDS-ON WORKSHOP)

Jonathan Gray, Kings College London

This workshop will explore digital methods for exploring the circulation of fake news. It draws on the recent Field Guide to Fake News, a project for the Public Data Lab (http://publicdatalab.org/) and a resulting publication which looks at using digital methods to study false viral news, political memes, trolling practices and their social life online (https://fakenews.publicdatalab.org/).

All welcome!
